New Restaurant Coming to Epcot’s Japan Pavilion

torii-gate.jpg

Today the Disney Parks Blog announced that an all-new table service restaurant will be coming to the Japan Pavilion in World Showcase. The restaurant will be a signature dining experience inspired by the natural beauty of Japan. The setting will draw from both nature and takumi, which means “artisan” in Japanese, and the relationship between Japanese craftsmanship and the natural world will be evident throughout the space.

The as-yet unnamed restaurant will be operated by Mitsukoshi USA, which currently operates the merchandise, restaurants (Teppan Edo and Tokyo Dining), and kiosks in the Japan Pavilion.

No further construction details or planned opening date have been announced.

  1. I wonder if it will be another restaurant to sit on the water? Seems like they are onto something with how popular Rose and Crown has always been for Illuminations seating. I love the idea of more options for that!

  2. No problem with a new restaurant in the Japan pavilion, but wish it were another quick service restaurant instead of a sit-down restaurant. Japan already has two of them.
